RESIDENTIAL ROOFING FAQS

Having a new roof installed is quite an ordeal. We know that you have a lot of questions. This page contains many Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) regarding roof replacement. Hopefully it will help you address some of your more common questions. If your questions are not completely addressed here, contact our office at (888) 530-7663. A member of our sales team will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.

There are many factors that go into determining this, including how close your roof is to the end of its expected lifespan, any severe storm damage, and the condition of the shingles or tiles. A roofing professional is the best person to assess whether a repair will do the job or a replacement is necessary.

Common materials used for roofing include asphalt shingles, metal, tile, and slate. Here’s a quick look at each type:

  • Asphalt shingles: 70% of homes in the US are roofed with asphalt shingles, because they are very affordable and offer good protection from the elements. They aren’t as durable as some other types of material, but they often last as much as 20 or 30 years before needing to be replaced.
  • Metal: More durable than asphalt and more resistant to wind, but also tend to be more expensive.
  • Tile: Lasts a very long time and is extremely resistant to fire. On the negative side, tile is can be more expensive and brittle, and it’s weight will require roof framing for extra reinforcement.
  • Slate: Extremely durable (can last a hundred years or more), but like tile, requires roof framing reinforcement because of its weight. Slate tends to be the most expensive option.

This varies depending on the size and scope of the project. Higher-end materials and a larger home will increase the price.  Our insurance adjustment team will work with you on filing your insurance claims.

Again, this depends largely on the type of materials and the size of the job. For a typical residential project, expect it to take one to two days. A very large, complex home or a commercial project can take much longer, from a few weeks up to a few months. When your roofing contractor gives you the estimate of the cost, they should also estimate how long the job will take.

It pays to look at how well the venting is currently working and consider if attic vents are simply replaced or if newer style roof vents will save you money on your summer heating bills.

Unless specifically instructed not to replace the felt we will roll out new felt.  Premium felt is thicker and will also help to slow the penetration of heat as well as help with noise reduction.

Call us to begin an estimate which will be provided to the insurance adjusters to justify the claim.
